Who are we?

My name is Gerry Brouwer and I am the owner of Parkside Motors. In 1979 my father fulfilled his dream of starting his own garage business after having worked for more than 25 years in the field. After the construction of the building was done, he focused his energy on building a reputation of honest work for good value. That ethos has remained to this day as we celebrate more than 30 years of serving Victoria’s automotive needs.

Our team consists of 4 fully licensed technicians who are well versed in every make of car, truck, and van.  We keep current by attending courses every year on all the latest technologies and repairs. Our mechanics pride themselves on creating a jovial and welcoming atmosphere for all of our clients and we are proud to perpetually extend honest and trustworthy service.

Parkside Motors was voted “Best Mechanic Shop” in 2001 and again in 2010 by the Best of the City awards. With pride we continue to strive to meet the needs of our clients, and our mission statement always remains: Offer friendly honest service for good value. We look forward to your visit and are proud to serve the automotive needs of the greater Victoria area.

Testimonials

"I took my car to Parkside for a second opinion after getting a $1000 quote from the competition.
Gerry told me that only $400 worth of the repairs were absolutely necessary and was able to save me over $600. What honesty!"

"For over 10 years now I have not even asked about cost, such is my confidence in Gerry and Andrew.
I am 100% able to trust that the invoice will be accurate, no small thing these days."
